Welcome to my web site. Dudenbostel Stringed Instruments has been dedicated to handcrafting the finest acoustic guitars and mandolins since 1989. With an eye to the past, I create instruments that honor the vintage “golden era” of the 1920’s and 30’s. With an ear to the future, I constantly strive to find new ways to achieve that vintage sound today. There are no shortcuts to quality and each instrument receives my undivided care and attention during the building process. I strive for perfection, but settle for excellence.
